Set or view permissions on a printer

Recommended Posts


I know I can use cacls to set permissions on folders.  But it does not seem to work on printers.

In my scenario, I want to query who created a print queue on a 2008 R2 server.  The only way I can think to get that info is from the SECURITY tab of printer properties.  It puts that persons name in the list.

So question 1, Does anyone know a better way to find out who created a printer on a server?  If not,

Question 2, how might someone extract permissions from said print serverm remotely.
